We are a community that gathers at 9:00 am on Sundays to celebrate and experience the gifts of God.

As a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio, we believe that: “God loves you. No exceptions.”

We invite you to come and experience that love with us!

Our History

     St. Thomas Episcopal Church, with its famous red doors, has stood as a landmark in downtown Port Clinton since 1896.  It was built in the Historic Gothic Revival Style with high wooden arches throughout the sanctuary and a raised hand-carved wooden altar.

     Although Episcopal Services were held in Port Clinton, as early as 1839, it was not until 1896 that a permanent building was built on the corner of 2nd and Jefferson St.  In 1919 a large Guild Hall and Rectory were added, and in 1931 Mr. and Mrs. Howard B. Magruder gifted a lovely Shantz pipe organ to St. Thomas.

     The house that stood on the lot south of the church was razed and in 1991 a Meditation and Reflective Garden was constructed, with a Columbarium as its focal point.

A Prayer for Peace in a Time of Conflict – Ukraine

Sovereign Lord, we pray for the nation of Ukraine, its leaders, and its people. We pray for their protection and an end to the Russian invasion.

We lament with the people of Ukraine, and we pray for the innocent, the frightened, and those who have lost loved ones, homes, and family.

At this time of escalating tension we pray with the people around the world for peace to prevail:

God of nations, whose sovereign rule brings justice and peace, have mercy on our broken and divided world.

Shed abroad your peace in the hearts of all and banish from them the spirit who makes for war, that all races and peoples may learn to live as members of one family and in obedience to your law, through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Source: perth.anglican.org

And in this time of fear and conflict, let us remember the words of our savior, Jesus Christ:

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not let them be afraid.”

– John 14: 27
